If you mean directly connected as in no firewall/proxy inbetween? I would
agree with you. No system should be connected to an uplink without (at the
very least) iptables or a router you can alter ACLs on yourself.
If you are saying that there should never be an RDBMS accepting connections on
the internet I would like to have some of what you're smoking, or at least
have access to the same deployment budgets you have.
